The Walters Art Museum | Art Sound Now: WAYTA

July 29, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

WAYTA was formed in 2018 in the social justice movements of Washington D.C. Initially starting as part of a larger musical project during the Standing Rock (NoDAPL) solidarity movement, WAYTA was consolidated as a duo and started performing and arranging instrumental Andean music as a form of cultural resistance and community participation. Multi-instrumentalists Cesar Mazat (Guatemala) and Gustavo Vargas (Bolivia), make the duo WAYTA a musical statement of unity for the Abya Yala.
